How Google Mulls Muslim Image

Auto-incorrect: Google changes ‘Muslims report terrorism’ to ‘Muslims support terrorism’

The presumptuous suggestion was first discovered by American Muslim blogger, Hind Makki, as a retort to a point by Hillary Clinton during last week’s Democratic primary debate that Muslims should be “on the frontline” of the battle against terrorism.
